    Thanks for the resources! Looks like the receiver of my rifle was made in October 1917.... Then it either waited for a July 1918 barrel or was rebarreled later.

    Yesterday I put in a bid on a cleaning kit on ebay for $30+... Lucky I was outbid, because I remember that this was in a spare parts bin at my local gunshop. Of course I was able to talk them down on the price!

    Go with part of an overhaul, therefore - Remington receiver with an Eddystone barrel.

    I figured as much. Still, Remington was the parent company of Eddystone. Maybe Remington needed a batch of barrels and Eddystone obliged?
